The Dr Plumb Quintex Black Coral is part of Dr Plumbs premium pipe range using the finest select briar and tapered fitting, Military mounted stems, which incorporate a unique filtering system. It is shaped to the classic bent billiard but has been sandblasted before a dark stain has been applied for a dramatic finish. The bowls is a fairly standard size and have a fairly thick wall, which doesn’t seem to add much weight but prevents overheating. The stem is the same high quality Lucite as used in the rest of the Dr Plumbs range but is slightly more robust and uses a tapered fitting military mount, which will still provide a very secure, air tight fit after many years of use.
The larger bore of the stem allows a more efficient filter system. There is a bigger filter and moisture trap with more room for the smoke to move around and cool down before moving into the stem. This free movement gives an unrestricted draw, whilst the natural condensation still filters and cools down the smoke for an un-rivalled smoking experience.
It is generally regarded that a pipe with a Rustic Finish will smoke cooler as there is more surface area in contact with the cooler air around it, which helps to disperse the heat. It also helps with grip for those who are prone to dropping their beloved briars.
This is a generic image that we have taken from a random selection of this pipe model from our stocks. It is unlikely to be the exact pipe you will receive. Due to the nature of the raw material used and this being a handmade product there will be some variation in grain, colour and finish.
There could also be a slight variation in the dimensions provided.
